Obtaining a well supported schema of phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of living organisms requires considering as much taxonomic diversity as possible, but the computational cost of calculating large phylogenies has so far been a major obstacle. We show here that the parsimony algorithms implemented in TNT can successfully process the largest phylogenetic data set ever analysed, consisting of molecular sequences and morphology for 73 060 eukaryotic taxa. The trees resulting… Expand
Phylogeny of the Rosidae: A dense taxon sampling analysis
TLDR
This study combines sequences from 9300 species, representing 2775 genera, 138 families, and 17 orders into a supermatrix, and shows the value of a botanically informed bioinformatics approach and dense taxonomic sampling for resolving rosid relationships. Expand
The phylogeny of insects in the data‐driven era
TLDR
This study further develop informatics protocols for de novo phylogenetic construction, and presents the most species‐comprehensive insect phylogeny to date, constructed hierarchically using c. Expand
Towards Resolving the Complete Fern Tree of Life
TLDR
The most comprehensive fern phylogeny to date, representing over one-fifth of the extant global fern diversity, is inferred based on four plastid genes, demonstrating the power of using a ‘supermatrix’ approach to resolve large-scale phylogenies and reveal questionable taxonomies. Expand
Maximum Likelihood Analyses of 3,490 rbcL Sequences: Scalability of Comprehensive Inference versus Group-Specific Taxon Sampling
The constant accumulation of sequence data poses new computational and methodological challenges for phylogenetic inference, since multiple sequence alignments grow both in the horizontal (number ofExpand
Stability analysis of phylogenetic trees
TLDR
This work defines measures that assess the stability of trees, subtrees and individual taxa with respect to changes in the input sequences and demonstrates the effectiveness of these measures on large published datasets. Expand
Building the avian tree of life using a large-scale, sparse supermatrix.
TLDR
The results indicate that the amount of sequence data currently available is sufficient to produce a robust estimate of the avian tree of life using current methods of inference, and the availability of a tree that is unconstrained by prior information should be useful for comparative methods, taxonomic revisions, and prioritizing taxa that should be targeted for additional data collection.

Angiosperm Phylogeny: A Framework for Studies of Genome Evolution
TLDR
An overview of plant phylogeny is provided, with an emphasis on angiosperms, based on the past two decades of research, that reveals repeated patterns of radiation throughout the angiosperm population and frequent episodes of whole-genome duplication. Expand
Constructing a broadly inclusive seed plant phylogeny.
TLDR
This study demonstrates a means for combining available resources to construct a dated phylogeny for plants by combining genetic data from public repositories with phylogenetic data from Open Tree of Life, resulting in a seed plant phylogeny. Expand
Genomic Repeat Abundances Contain Phylogenetic Signal
TLDR
This method provides generally well-supported relationships at interspecific and intergeneric levels that agree with results from more standard phylogenetic analyses of commonly used markers, and it is proposed that this methodology may prove especially useful in groups where there is little genetic differentiation in standard phylogenetics markers.

YBYRÁ facilitates comparison of large phylogenetic trees
TLDR
YBYRÁ facilitates comparison of large phylogenetic trees and outperforms competing software in terms of usability and time efficiency, specially for large data sets. Expand

Global eukaryote phylogeny: Combined small- and large-subunit ribosomal DNA trees support monophyly of Rhizaria, Retaria and Excavata.
TLDR
The results suggest that combined SSU+LSU rDNA phylogenies can help to resolve several ambiguous regions of the eukaryotic tree and identify key taxa for subsequent multi-gene analyses. Expand
Genome-scale data, angiosperm relationships, and "ending incongruence": a cautionary tale in phylogenetics.
TLDR
A conspicuous example that includes Amborella, the putative sister of all other extant angiosperms, is provided, highlighting the limits of phylogenetics when whole genomes are used but taxon sampling is poor. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of annelids
TLDR
Parsimony analyses of annelids based on the largest taxon sample and most extensive molecular data set yet assembled suggest that the poor resolution in the basal parts of the trees presented here may be due to lack of signal connected to incomplete data sets, rapid radiation events and/or uneven evolutionary rates and long‐branch attraction. Expand
Broadly sampled multigene trees of eukaryotes
TLDR
The analytical approach substantiates the power of increased taxon sampling in placing diverse eukaryotic lineages within well-supported clades and indicates that the six supergroup hypothesis of higher-level eucaryotic classification is likely premature. Expand
Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees from multiple methods provide strong support for the position of Amborella as the earliest diverging lineage of flowering plants, followed by Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and the plastid genome trees also provide strongSupport for a sister relationship between eudicots and monocots, and this group is sister to a clade that includes Chloranthales and magnoliids.

A morphological analysis of marsupial mammal higher-level phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
Twenty-one marsupial terminal taxa representing all the major radiations of marsupials and 10 outgroups, most of which are exceptionally well-preserved fossils such as Vincelestes, Ukhaatherium, and a few basal metatherian taxa, were investigated, resulting in one most parsimonious tree. Expand
Support, Ribosomal Sequences and the Phylogeny Of The Eukaryotes
TLDR
Trees from aligned sequences from eukaryotes in the Ribosomal Database Project are calculated using parsimony jackknifing which uses a resampling procedure to rapidly search large data sets for the branches that are strongly supported and eliminates poorly supported groups. Expand
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms. Expand
A kingdom-level phylogeny of eukaryotes based on combined protein data.
TLDR
The sequences of four of the most broadly taxonomically sampled proteins available are combined to create a roughly parallel data set to that of SSU rRNA, showing strong support for most major groups and several major supergroups. Expand
The Diversity of Eukaryotes
TLDR
This catalog includes all known major elements of the comprehensive evolutionary tree of protists and eukaryotes and introduces the concept of “extended in‐group” to refer to in‐groups and the most proximate sister group and to assist in identifying the hierarchical location of taxa. Expand
